Our Services and Clinics


We offer many services at Field Street Surgery, to prevent registered patients traveling to community hospitals for tests that can be done in-house where possible. We intend to run targeted health campaigns and form partnerships with local voluntary groups.

Some of the services we offer include:

  • Chaperones - If there is need for an examination of an intimate nature by the doctor, you may wish a chaperone to be present. You can ask for one of our staff to act as a chaperone, or alternatively you can return for the examination at a mutually convenient time and bring a relative or friend with you.

  • Cervical Smears - These are taken by the practice nurse. The Health Authority will usually inform you of the result. If you have not had a report within six weeks of the test, please let us know.

  • Contraception - Family planning advice is available from the doctor or practice nurse.

Our services
  • Medical Certificates - Medical Certificates are given at the discretion of the doctor for bona fide medical conditions. Legally, we are unable to back-date these unless we have seen you for the same condition in the recent past.

    Please do not ask for medical certificates over the telephone – we are unable to issue them. You will need to come in for an appointment with the doctor for this.

  • Influenza Vaccination - These are available from October onwards each year.

  • Spirometry - We now offer lung function tests.

  • Chlamydia Screening - Ask at reception for an appointment with the practice nurse.

  • 24-hour Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring - We now have the ability to monitor a patient's blood pressure over 24 hours - this saves the inconvenience of referring you to hospital.

  • 24-hour Electro-Cardiogram (ECG) - We have purchsed a 24-hour ECG machine to continually monitor heart activity throughout the day and night.

  • Stop Smoking Service - Please make an appointment with our practice nurse to discuss your needs. Local pharmacies also hold smoking cessation clinics and can advise you further.
